Kobe Bryant is one proud papa!
The former LA Lakers player shared the first photo of his newborn daughter Bianka with wife Vanessa Bryant on Instagram — and the baby girl is as cute as expected.
Bundled up in a blush pink blanket, the newborn sleeps peacefully in the touching image shared by her famous father.
"@vanessabryant and I are beyond excited to welcome our newest baby girl, Bianka," he captioned the photo, along with the hashtags, #BabyBlessing #SweetBaby #AnotherAngel."
The 38-year-old athlete is now a father of three girls, with Bianka joining older sisters, Natalia, 13, and Gianna, 10.
The NBA star announced he was expecting baby No. 3 in July with his wife of 15 years, sharing the exciting news by posting a photo of a onesie with the words "Baby Mamba," a matching red bow and a pair of tiny sneakers.
"Beyond blessed and excited to share that we are expecting our third baby girl," he wrote at the time.

The Bryant family appeared together on the red carpet at the Kids' Choice Sports Awards just days after the gender reveal — where Vanessa showed off her baby bump in a form-fitting red dress.
Kobe, who also retired from basketball earlier this year, has been very vocal about his commitment to his family.
"What we try do as parents is we just try to help them navigate through the inner monologue that takes place with kids, not necessarily whether they play well or play bad, we don't care about that, right? But if your daughter goes up and she strikes out, how does she navigate herself through that emotionally, you know what I mean?" he said in an interview with the The Insider's Michael Yo. "As parents, we just try to guide them to kind of have that attitude because when you have that attitude you can navigate yourself through it. You can do anything you want."
